Take a step back in time to see historic craft demonstrations, sample homemade butter, have a music lesson on a duclimer, and enjoy life in Carroll County as it used to be.

Heritage Saturday is 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday,  Sept. 20 at the Masterson House on U.S. 42 West,  across from Arkema, near the Carrollton city limits.

The Masterson House itself is home to the Port William Historical Society, and they offer this view of a bygone era twice a year – once in the spring and once in the fall.

Visit with crafters under the tent as they demonstrate, tatting, chair caning, spinning wool, quilting, basket making, and sample homemade butter made by the historical society.

An antique tractor show is scheduled, along with a bake sale. Sandwiches will also be offered, according to member Nancy Jo Grobmyer.

The event is free to the public and everyone is invited to attend and tour the house as it probably looked when it was built circa 1790.

The Masterson House can also be rented for special occasions, weddings, family reunions, and bridal or baby showers.
